SHOULD HAVE

Should have ignored,
Scrolled on by;
Waved the sword,
Voiced my reply.

Tensions escalated, agitated,
Muddied the bleakness;
Flustered and aggravated,
I sensed weakness.

Rhetorical, regurgitated rhetoric,
Blatant corruption, lies
Sanctified what’s degenerate;
Helped me realize.

Resist the bait;
Turns clear hazy.
Divided we deteriorate;
Comments confirm crazy.


ADVERSITY


Reevaluation

Smile, pretend.
Laugh, ignore.
Frown, defend.
Cry, restore.

Time won’t heal
Can’t gradually erase;
Will only conceal
A permanent disgrace.

Enough is enough
When everything’s gone;
No waking up,
No carrying on.

Smile, pretend.
Laugh, ignore.
Frown, defend.
Cry, restore.


Somewhere


Tranquility


Gain
